Job Fair coming June 18

By Rita Howell
Thirty-four vendors are registered to participate in the Northwest Mississippi Area Job Fair June 18 at the Batesville Civic Center, according to officials with the Mississippi Department of Employment Security.

Job hunters are encouraged to meet with employers who represent job opportunities in many different fields. Hours of the fair are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Last year more than 750 job seekers came to the event and 279 job offers were extended, with contacts expected to result in more job offers as positions became available later, a WIN Job Center spokesman said at the time.
